    That pedal switch is great. The automatic in this truck is way better than in my old T680 with my other co.

    Saying that, don't get your hopes up too much. I'm in my 3rd MACK since February. DEF, regen and multiple "check engine" issues. Not impressed.

    I would always hit a bump and accidentally downshift to 11th. Mine had 75k trouble free miles before i left.

    It's amazing that yours lasted so long. Mine started acting possessed with the electrics at 400K, but I got it well used. In a well used Mack now, I like it. I did get to take a peak at a new Mack a while back. The only changes I can remember were the transmission on the dash, carpeted ceilings, and they switched the fitting box and step ladder around. I was really bummed by the switch since the fitting box feels flimsy to step on.

    Finally getting settled into the truck. I like it better so far. Pulls much better. Cut 15 minutes off my normal time to run from Charleston WV to High Point down I 77.

    Hate the headroom between the seats but I believe it’s a little bigger between the seats and the bunk. Plenty of storage in the 2 cabinets but had to get a couple of those seat back pocket things to store what I had in the overhead bins in the Prostar.

    I was able to get my modified Coleman cooler to fit in the passenger seat. The CB power source is the screw on posts and my cooler works great. I had it hard wired in the Prostar per this thread:
